Some thoughts on suffering
To all who were told life is easy peasy when you follow the Lord, I'm sorry you were lied to. If you have been sold this feel good 'if anything goes wrong you lack faith' waffle I feel for you. Those who say such things seem more like Jobs "friend's" than they probably realise. Jesus promises that in this life there will be sorrows. Our comfort is that he suffers with us in a broken and crucified world (that is far from Eden) and that one day it will all be over and the Lamb will crush the serpent, that destroyer of human souls. Until then let's fight the good fight!
